Civil Engineering Students Eisenhower Fellows

Civil Engineering Students Eisenhower Fellows

This year, two students in the Civil Engineering Department received the prestigious Dwight David Eisenhower Transportation Fellowship from the US Department of Transportation. The Program is intended to bring innovation and enhance the breadth and scope of knowledge of the entire transportation community in the United States. The program encompasses all modes of transportation related research.

This year’s Eisenhower Fellows are Michael Mercado (B.S. 2010), an incoming M.S. student in Structural Engineering, and Michael Maness, an MS student in Transportation Engineering. Michael Mercado is working on developing innovative structural testing methods for more realistic evaluation and validation of bridge condition assessment and repair techniques and Michael Maness is researching vehicle ownership issues.

Congratulations to both Mikes!
